Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary

Program Duration

1-2 Weeks, 2-4 Weeks, 5-8 Weeks, 3-6 Months


We welcome volunteers from all across the world aged 18+ to join our projects. No other experience or qualifications are necessary.

Research volunteers need to be fit for hilly country, unpredictable weather and steep paths. Some activities will require walking long distances while others can be conducted from a car. It would be advantageous if you could bring your binoculars, GPS devices, compasses, and/or range finders as they can be useful during some of the activities or during your time “off duty.”

Volunteers are required to sign an indemnity form acknowledging and accepting the consequences of working in close contact with wild animals.
